Anybody tried to drive up early in the morning after a dump? Do they get the roads open or is best to wait a day?

thanks

Are you thinking about Snowshoe in WV?  Perhaps @Falco can help.  He is the EpicSki Ambassador for Snowshoe.

 

Have you driven to Snowshoe before?

I figured it out, checked the WV road conditions site. They are all open today despite the big storm.

The big snow was in NC and VA, not WV this time.  Wintergreen and Massanutten got 12-13 inches last night and it's still snowing.  Mnut isn't going to groom today.  A lot easier to get to than Snowshoe in terms of driving.  Might even be a few Level II/III instructors around for a powder lesson.  ;)

Oh marznc, I don't think WV got left out of this storm. I am not sure about Snowshoe but Timberline/Canaan Valley got 12" overnight and still snowing, expecting another six inches today. I'll be knee deep by 8:00 am Friday.

Yeah, I read something on DCSki the wrong way.  SS is reporting 14 inches with 5 more expected today.  Have fun!

Sorry I'm late to the party, yep Snowshoe is reporting 14" as of this AM, with more on the way.

 

Snowshoe is the main tourist destination in Pocahontas County, so they do all they can up there to have the roads prepared/accessible.

 

That said, 14" is still 14", and it often takes them the better part of the day to have the roads looking good. 

 

Obviously AWD/4WD is your best bet, but each and every trip I see lot's of 2wd sedans/coupes/etc. If you've got chains, bring them.
